THE BEST OF YOU


You use to buy me flowers…draw my bath
Massage my body…when I was feeling bad
Take me dancing…out on the town
But lately, Baby…you’re hardly around

Somethin’s missin’…in this take and give
You take for granted – I’m wearin’ thin
I want the love back…Entirely
A piece of nothing…don’t work for me

I want the best of you, but all I seem to get is the rest of you
Where in the hell is your love going to?
I want the best of you, but all I seem to get is what’s left of you
What in the hell am I suppose to do?


You use to give me kisses…just because
Say you loved me…enough to fill my cup
Told me stories…that made me laugh
Whatever we had…is lost in the past

I thought you told me, what’s yours is mine
Then tell me, Baby…why can’t I have your time?
I don’t ask much – I just want the best
When it comes to your heart, I don’t want what’s left

I want the best of you, but all I seem to get is the rest of you
Where in the hell is your love going to?
I want the best of you, but all I seem to get is what’s left of you
What in the hell am I suppose to do?


Do you remember…how it all began?
‘Cause we went from romance…to a bitter end
What good is patience…without the time?
What good is romance…if one’s denied?

What did I do to lose you? – Tell me why
…I only get what’s…left of your time
Neglect is one thing…I won’t accept
All or nothing – I want the best

I want the best of you, but all I seem to get is the rest of you
Where in the hell is your love going to?
I want the best of you, but all I seem to get is what’s left of you
What in the hell am I suppose to do?


You’re not giving your fifty percent
You’re not even giving two
Why do I only get what’s left
I want the best of you
